Welcome to Art Fair Insiders, Savina.  I'm pleased to see you here and look forward to having you as part of our community.

When you have a chance, please add a photo of yourself and stop by the "Discussions" area to introduce yourself to the rest of us. We all look forward to your participation here. Also, visit the "member map" and add your location. We have a lot to offer one another, experienced and newbie alike. Let's make this a dynamic site!

Many topics have already been discussed here before you joined us. You might like to try a search of your topic before you post your question. Just put your topic, canopy tents, jurying fees, Ann Arbor Art Fair, etc, into the search bar at the top of the right side of the page. You might be surprised that someone has already asked your question.

We also ask that all new members take a few moments of their time to read the code of conduct. You will find it at http://www.artfairinsiders.com/page/code-of-conduct. There are a few guidelines that all members will need to follow because , as in any social community, we all need to work together.

Best wishes, Connie Mettler

p.s. The best way to make this system easy to use is to click on the "Follow-Email me" link at the bottom of each Forum discussion that interests you. That way the system will email you automatically whenever anyone responds. It's a great time-saver.

Hi Connie,

I'm sorry I didn't respond sooner - I didn't see a notification of your comment. Thank you! I'm having a great time getting to know everyone and "talking shop!" This is a great group of people and I really appreciate their willingness to share information and help out a newbie! I especially appreciate all of the work that you put into this site & the FB pages - that's got to be a monumental amount of work! It's an unbelievable resource & I'm spreading the word to other artists I know!

Hi Savina, I see someone mentioned Mark Vranesh shows.  Mark is a friend of mine and I do all of his shows.  I live in Las Vegas and find Mark to be a fine promoter.  He has a great reputation here in Vegas.  The Boulder City, NV show is one of my best shows. You need to ask to be placed in the Fine Art section of the park.  Mark's email is MarkVranesh@gmail.com

Good Luck!

Paul
